've seen it through the debt ceiling where president obama is moving in their direction and it's still never enough. it's never going to be enough. interestingly here to beth's point, you have a potential strategy here where president obama is demonstrating yet again another object lesson that the republicans are intransigent, not willing to do anything he propose's -- cenk: i got to ask you though, you're all right beth's right joe's right, he's proving over and over republicans are intransigent, but then gives republicans when they wanted and gives it to them again and again. where's the brilliant strategy on policy? isn't he getting his ass kicked? start with joe and move on down. >> it depends on how big a picture you're looking at. certainly in 2012 when we talked about the negotiations over the debt ceiling. what president obama got was an extension of unemployment benefits an extension of the painful tax holiday. cenk: whoop-to-doo! >> for someone at the end of the level, that four or five weeks made a big difference. it also mattered in the fact that it did not detrimentally af

to be confronted in the next weeks and months as you and the chairman pointed out is the debt ceiling. i hope we have all learned from our experience in the summer of 2011 that it is irresponsible and reckless for the united states to suggest that it will not meet its financial obligations. the there's bondholders, social security recipients, due to other people have contracted with the united states government. in the house in the next couple weeks, we are expected to take up a bill that says, you know what, we can prioritize their deaths. based on that book take on first, but other debts and obligations including this congress have taken on, they don't have as high a priority. could you, mr. secretary, secretary of the treasury comment on what impact it would have on our economy and the signal is sent to the international communist united states were to default on any of its obligations? >> congressman, that notion you prayer a case which is the obligation congress authors should be paid is one that just doesn't work. hhs would obligation your defaulted non. we have never in the history defaul

lawmakers will square off on whether to raise the debt ceiling. at the recent clinton global initiative, the president recognized students from the university of virginia who won the top prize for their efforts in educating peers about the debt. >> i'm grateful for the passion many students has shown for this issue. they are creative in the competition. they made youtube videos and held social media contests. >> let's bring in team leader one of the five students who spearheaded the projects. good morning. congratulations. >> thank you, chris. >> so you won the top prize. you got to meet with president clinton. not bad. tell us about your project. >> sounds great. so the campaign was focused on getting students involved in the conversation and making sure that they're active in the learning process before we graduate and before we become representatives in any way or become leaders in our respective fields. our campaign focused on 31 initiatives that got students united with their community members and their representatives. we hosted senator mark warner to connect our representatives w

they have to raise the debt ceiling again or else the u.s. could default on its credit. i think that is the sort of mechanism by which we're going to have more -- somebody is going to have to take some action. the question is how big. the president still on this offensive. i think what we have heard from republicans is they're genuinely impressed that the president has gone to these lengths. he's made them feel comfortable in the meetings but the problem is the president in showing good faith to talk about cutting entitlements and social security, he's angered some democrats and he doesn't have a lot of wiggle room now. he's hoping republicans meet him halfway. the problem still is the taxes. the republicans say they raised it in january. the president got what he wanted, albeit less than he want, but they don't want to do that again. let's have the budget cuts without that. i think that's the problem. as much as the president is wining and dining, i think this is where the sticking point will continue to be. >> you talk about no wiggle room. not only does he have critics on the
